      Season 3 – The Deuce

      2019 Drama TRAILER for The Deuce: Season 3 'Recap' Trailer List
      88% 17 Reviews Tomatometer 87% 100+ Ratings Audience Score Created by George Pelecanos and David Simon, who also collaborated on HBO's "The Wire" and "Treme," the semifictional drama series "The Deuce" tells of the germination of the sex-trade industry in the heart of New York's Times Square. It's the early 1970s, and the porn business begins a shift from organized crime-backed parlors to a legitimate, culturally accepted enterprise. A cast of barkeeps, prostitutes, pimps, police and nightlife seekers centers around twins Vincent and Frankie Martino (James Franco, in a dual role), who navigate the sex business after meeting well-connected mobster Rudy Pipilo. Their storyline, among others, merges with that of prostitute Candy, whose ambition and intelligence lead her to a more prominent role in the industry.

      What to Know

      Critics Consensus

      Visually rich and utterly human, what narrative stream The Deuce loses in its final season is more than made up for in its depth of character and world building.

      Rebecca Nicholson Guardian This is rich television that demands you put down your phone and give it your full attention. As a portrait of a time and industry, it is both brilliantly broad and painfully precise. Rated: 5/5 Jan 3, 2020 Full Review Suzi Feay Financial Times Gyllenhaal with sharp, quiffed hairstyle and big-boss earrings is tough and streetwise, but still tender beneath, as when Eileen reminisces with a co-worker how they each got into the game - the stories aren't nice. Rated: 5/5 Dec 30, 2019 Full Review Inkoo Kang Slate The Deuce's greatest and most distinct strengths: its unflinching exploration of the manifold and frequently unforeseen costs of sex work. Oct 29, 2019 Full Review Susan Kemp Consequence While these moments of self-awareness may draw you out, the central plot of Season 3... is prestige television at its finest. Jan 3, 2020 Full Review Tim Appelo AARP Movies for Grownups A final, gripping season. Sep 27, 2019 Full Review Chris Osterndorf The Daily Dot Another expert meditation on corruption and disenfranchisement from Simon, The Deuce hammers home the fact that sex work should be normalized, not demonized.

      Gareth v A brilliant final season that doesn't gloss over the effects of the sex industry on it's key characters. Sad, brutal and honest. The final scene is fantastic and touching. Rated 5 out of 5 stars 06/28/23 Full Review StephenPaul C The greatest final 8 episodes ever!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Rated 5 out of 5 stars 06/15/23 Full Review Doug B Oof, this season gets dark and sad. Still good. Rated 3.5 out of 5 stars 02/05/23 Full Review Saurav Jay C The last season was just boring. We are supposed to care about characters who we don't really care about. I liked Abby but in the end we had to watch her throw away her life for no particular reason. Maggie's character also got boring. The list goes on Rated 2 out of 5 stars 01/28/23 Full Review jack z The Deuce is smart to make such large time jumps between seasons, and the third and final is much more immediately electrifying than the previous two. It ends strongly and emotionally with the most thematic and unfiltered season overall. The finale wasn't perfect, but it left me with the distinct realization that everyone I've ever met is going to die. Season 3 hones the show's skills and focuses on what it does best: characterization. The best thing about The Deuce has always been how the events surrounding the characters have shaped their decisions and outlook on life. Rated 5 out of 5 stars 03/30/23 Full Review ma'ark t The final season of The Deuce left me bored. However, the finale was extremely sad.
